“We’re talking about giving vitamins beyond the RDA. What does that stand for… The Recommended Daily Allowance,” Dr. Raj Dasgupta of the University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine said. “They take into consideration about the absorption issues.

Dr. Dasgupta adds, there are also dangers associated with IV therapy, including possible bruising, clotting, bleeding and risk of infection.
